Is this who you want in charge of North Carolina?
According to the News & Observer's Under the Dome Blog, North Carolina House Republican Larry Brown "referred to gays as 'queers' and 'fruitloops'" an e-mail to Republican caucus members:
Brown was responding to an e-mail House Minority Leader Paul Stam of Apex sent to members of his caucus about House Speaker Joe Hackney getting an award from the Equality NC Foundation, a gay-rights group.
Brown sent his reply to nearly 60 e-mail addresses.
"I hope all the queers are thrilled to see him," said the message dated Sept. 27. "I am sure there will be a couple legislative fruitloops there in the audience."
Where the News & Observer gets it wrong, however, is in the details. Brown was hinting that some legislators are gay by calling them "fruitloops," not calling gays in general fruitloops. If you know anything about North Carolina politics, you know that the only legislators who attend the Equality NC gala will be Democrats.
This Republican member of the General Assembly is so juvenile that he's got to call his legislative opponents "gay."
